According to L’Equipe, FC Porto is the club in the best position to secure the services of Mbaye Niang, from whom Stade Rennais is willing to part ways.
Back from a inconclusive loan in Saudi Arabia (5 small appearances with Al-Ahli Jeddah), Mbaye Niang should not make old bones at Stade Rennais. Out of the plans of the successive coaches of the Breton club, the Senegalese international striker does not have less tracks abroad. According to The team, these would lead to Turkey (Besiktas), Russia (FC Krasnodar) and Portugal.
In search of reinforcements likely to compensate for the departure of Moussa Marega, FC Porto would be the preferred track. Despite a contract running until June 2021, the former AC Milan player should be released against “almost symbolic” compensation, according to the sports daily.
